(Santo Domingo, September 9, 2015) – The Dominican Republic Environmental Film Festival (DREFF) began its planned activities on Wednesday September 9th in La Vega with a screening of the documentary Exuma, at the Universidad Nacional Pedro Henríquez Ureña (UNPHU).
The activity was led by Scarlet Peña, a UNPHU representative who gave the welcoming words. Charlotte Vick and Reydi Moreta were present as representatives of the DREFF.
Over 180 university students attended the screening and took part in a lively question and answer session following the film.
Exhuma is a documentary that uses innovative cinematography above and below the sea’s surface as a way of showing the surreal beauty of the Exuma Cays, a group of islands in the Bahamas.
This documentary is the first to show the beauty of these islands, which belong to the so-called Out Islands (outer islands of the Bahamas). It also captures the world of sand, sky, and water through the eyes of a young girl who lives there. Underwater images and time-lapse techniques show a side of the Exuma Cays that are virtually unknown.
